the site had serious problems. hhs secretary kathleen sebelius denies she ignored plans. >> white house officials were inflexible say new reports, and would not negotiate with the contractors to extend the october 1st debut. was the system delivered on october 1st. >> it was,s it wasn't performing as well as we liked. we did deliver a system. >> glitches, do you think, is that the proper word to describe the roll out. >> i think there are problems >> problems that president obama admitted to. >> i think we underestimated the complexities of building a website that needed to work the way it should. they insist that the website is improving. a chief economic provider happens been brought in to oversee repairs. >> glitches with the government healthcare website are deminnishing healthcare approval of president obama and his party. we go to rome, georgia where tea party candidates are using the troubled roll out to their advantage. >> in rome, georgia, political chatter about what is happening in washington. >> 90% of people up there don't have a clue about what is going tonne in the united
. it's not kathleen sebelius' fault that the obamacare web site isn't working. it's not his fault. it's not the democrats' fault who voted for it. it has to be the republicans' fault because none of them were in favor of it. take a listen. >> if we didn't have one wing of one party that was a little less obsessed with repealing health care for 40 million people, more concerned with making sure the law works, if they hadn't spent 40 votes trying to repeal the affordable care act, they might have actually taken some votes on rebuilding our infrastructure or instituting early childhood education for young people across this country, or investing more money in basic research. any of the serious proposals i put forward that would be creating jobs right now, they could have taken votes on that. instead of rooting for failure. >> unfortunately for the president, it has failed in many ways so far because of the web site and also the technical challenges people have faced. what's interesting is apparently because the democrats in the senate are getting their ears chewed off, this thing just is
health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius claims is now improving daily. >> first of all, i'd say, it is running right now, every day people are coming through, every day people are getting enrolled. >> reporter: mark your calendars for november 30th. the white house says it will be working for, quote, the vast majority of users by the end of the month. >> it is our conviction that we can, with the fixes being implemented reach that goal by november 30th. >> reporter: the administration is under pressure to work fast. a bill by mary landrieu would allow americans to keep their insurance plans, an idea they worry could undermine the whole program. >> does anybody have any idea how much all this is going to cost us in the end? we've spent $600 million already. >> reporter: white house top officials including chief of staff dennis mcdonough are expected to head up to capitol hill to talk to senate democrats about some of these proposals that would allow americans to keep their insurance plan if they like it. i had a chance to catch up with mcdonough in the driveway of the white
. host: kathleen sebelius. caller: yeah. it embarrasses me. i want to kind of change parties, but my grandfather, father, everybody in my family is a republican. they always have been. i'm kind of ashamed of them. the only republican i like now is john boehner, and i used to like paul ryan, but every time i see paul ryan, like the clip you had earlier i watched, paul ryan reminds me of john boehner. they are kind of the same. i used to think they were both the smartest republicans. i liked them the most. but they just don't understand with the latino votes, it will never be high for them ever, and i don't think they have a high african-american vote, they do white peoplene blow, they have the crazy white people blow. i can see where the -- people vote. i can see where they're going down. they have always needed to go moderate. if they have gotten moderate from the beginning and not gotten in talks with the tea party -- host: you might be interested in a piece on the cover of politico's new magazine, the cover story is locked in the cabinet -- the worst job in barack obama's washingto
for obamacare still being built. >> yeah. >> apparently it's not complete. >> for some reason, kathleen sebelius and the president of the united states made their second deadline by november 30th. the second they said that, i thought, wait. the guy you brought in to fix it says it's worse than we thought! why would you pick out an arbitrary date right after thanksgiving and say, that's when it will be fixed? now nobody thinks that date is going to mean anything. >> it would be optimal. >> right. >> i remember them saying optimal function by the end of november. >> and keep in mind, you got to be signed up by the end of the year. so they figured, we should give people at least a one month opportunity. but now kathleen sebelius says the end of this month, not a deadline. quote, the 30th of november is not a magic go, no-go date. it is a work of constant improvement. what's interesting is she was down in florida yesterday. she was speaking at florida tech college in orlando and it's kind of sad because there she was talking about how it's working. we've had a few problems. she's walking amongst som
a faster and youers will face fewer errors. kathleen is h sebelius has some, to shop the website during off peak times and don't be afraid to comparison shop to get the best deal. we will gather to the health policy reporter for the wall street journey, she's in washington tonight. they said it won't be perfect, do you think it will be largely problem free. >> what we're hearing some of the front-end problems have been fixed so the site looks better, the pages load faster, some of the back end problems the administration has acknowledged there are still problems. they're still tripping up the identity page. these are problems that could be exacerbated by a volume of people come together site. >> will most people be able to log onto the website and buy insurance? >> the best way to think about these problems is that they're hidden to a large number of people. but they're very real problems and hard to fix. the vast majority of people may see a better using experience on this site. what remains to be seen is whether a good number of people are still getting tripped up by the back end problem.
